6:02 am
it happened early this morning in oakland. anne makovec joins us from children's hospital where the girl is being treated. anne. >> reporter: she is six years old and her name is leslie ramirez, here at children's hospital right now after being shot in the arm while she slept at 2:15:00 a.m. this morning. these are pictures of the home where this happened on seminary avenue. we counted about 20 bullet holes on the side of the home and also in the window. apparently at least one of the bullets entered the home, hit the little girl in the arm as she slept in her bed, and then was lodged in her chest. that is according to her sister. likely more than one shooter involved in this according to police. here's what the sister has to say. >> we were all sleeping and i heard like a lot of gunshots and then i woke up and i -- i heard my mom crying and
6:03 am
screaming and then she had my little sister, so i asked like if they were okay. then i seen my little sister, she was really bleeding from her arm. so i called 911. >> reporter: nobody has been arrested in this case. police also told us that there was a similar incident some sort of shooting at this home about a month ago. they believe this was gang- related. 6-year-old leslie ramirez here at children's hospital. she is expected to survive. that's the one piece of good news here. >> it is. thank you, anne makovec in oakland. we are following some breaking news right now. want to show you some live pictures. this is out of los angeles. here's what we're learning. there was an underground electrical vault explosion shattering windows and cutting power to a 15 story medical building. so far, no reports of any
6:04 am
injuries. investigators have been called in to examine the building and we will continue to follow this story throughout the morning. and you can look for updates on this on our website, cbs5.com. federal investigators are looking into the possibility of a link between a power failure and this month's explosion and fire in san bruno. the electricity outage in milpitas affected pg&e's natural gas pipeline system just hours before part of it exploded in san bruno's glenview neighborhood. local congresswoman jackie speier says it was likely a combination of several factors that led to the blast which killed 7 people and destroyed 37 homes on september 9. the disaster will be the focus of a u.s. senate hearing today in washington. and this morning, california's first execution in five years is delayed by legal issues. albert greenwood brown was supposed to die just after midnight. but the governor delayed the y pushing it back to -- delays
6:05 am
the execution pushing it back to thursday night. he wants all legal options to be considered. the judge involved in the death penalty case must reconsider a crucial ruling. late last night a federal appeals court said judge jeremy fogel made a mistake by offering the inmate a one-drug legal injection or a three-drug cocktail. now, the court said offering a choice is not consistent with california law. and later today, we will get a better snapshot in the race for california governor. it is the first debate between democrat jerry brown and republican meg whitman. they will square off in oakland with two more debates in the future. a recent poll shows brown with a slight lead over whitman, but it's within the margin of error. also two earthquakes on the hayward fault shook the east bay last night. did you feel it? both quakes had a magnitude of 2.0. the first struck just before 6:00 p.m.
6:06 am
the second quake centered near hayward struck a few hours later. all right. a lot of questions but no answers after two men armed with rifles stroll into a bay area airport. surveillance video shows the men actually walking into the terminals at mineta san jose international airport saturday. they were from lawrence livermore labs and they came to pick up a colleague. while they didn't cause any harm, they should have called the airport ahead of time. >> actually it's good police work that if you are a law enforcement officer and you are on someone else's territory that you want to check in so that you can work together minimize the chances for misunderstandings. >> no one reported the unusual visit for more than 24 hours. san jose police have started an internal review. 6:06. let get another check of our hot weather and traffic. first we are going to check in with elizabeth. >> hey, we are checking to see if there are any hot spots around the bay area and one of
6:07 am
them is highway 4. definitely starting to slow down now in the westbound lanes from about a street towards somersville. speeds pick up closer to pittsburg and bay point. overall so far, so good out of downtown san jose, northbound lanes of 280. there is an accident though reported by the los altos hills northbound 280 by magdalena. an accident there involving a deer. sounds like the deer may still be in lanes but chp and most of the activity is off to the shoulder so it is still early of course not causing any huge delays through the area. this is an accident i mentioned in my last report, eastbound 580 at first street in livermore. don't have much details about it other than that. it is going against the commute. westbound 580 is where it is a little slow and 17 minutes from the altamont pass towards the dublin interchange. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. it's going to be another hot one today. headed out the door, this will be the coolest time of the

now, santa clara county supervisors are expected to vote this morning about 9:30 to opt out of secure communities. san francisco county is also trying to do that. we want to note that supporters of the program say it's a commonsense way to identify illegal immigrants who are also possibly violent offenders and have them deported from the country. i'm matt bigler in san jose for cbs 5. >> thank you. the makers of the blackberry are out with a new tablet device. jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com has more on the business headlines this morning. >> good morning. >> good morning, juliette. we saw bay area home prices rise a little bit more in july than they did in june according to the home price index, up .5% as opposed to .3% in june. in the 20-city average, it was up a little more at .6%
6:48 am
although the bay area had a bigger year-over-year rise of at 22%. in july we saw home prices fall nationally by 27%. a little bit of a pickup in august but we're seeing many markets around the country start to lose their edge in prices as sales around the country fall back a little heading into the fall. it's going to be hard for the housing market to maintain its current prices even though mortgage rates have been at traditionally low rates for quite some time now. stock market is a little lower right now. we are going to get a report on consumer confidence in a little bit. investors want to see what americans are feeling about when it comes to the economy. the dow is lower by 34 points. nasdaq down by 17. s&p 500 off by 4. blackberry maker research in motion has been really struggling with blackberry sales of late hoping to get into the tablet market with a device called the playbook. it's quite a bit smaller than the ipad with a 7" screen as
6:49 am
opposed to the ipad's 9.7." it's a little lighter and less than a pound as opposed to the pound and a half weight of the ipad. no word on pricing. research in motion won't get the playbook into stores until the early part of next year. so it's going to miss out on the holiday shopping season. investors aren't all that happy about that. right now, research in motion's shares are down a little more than 3% on that news. the ipad has sold at least 3 million in the first three months of sales for the ipad. and goldman sachs says that the next version. ipad probably won't come out until next june. that's a little later than some analysts had thought. they say it's probably going to weigh a little less but they will also probably have a built- in camera for people who want to use that for any of their picture taking abilities with the ipad, juliette. >> okay. jason brooks from jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. jason, thanks so much. it is 6:49. target stores are knee deep in
